Hi guys, I really need an answer because my roommate is freaking out!
My healthy roommate stubbed toe and tore the skin this afternoon. It's been 10 hours, and blood has steadily been seeping out of her wound. The bleeding isn't excessive, what worries her is that it just won't stop.
She has been having seemingly unrelated symptoms this summer that have been causing her to worry. A few time when she hasn't eaten enough she has felt lightheaded and shaky. This also happened once when she said she had had plenty to eat.
I'm wondering, does she have any cause for concern? I advised her to go to our college health center tomorrow but she would like some information/reassurance tonight.
